The location was very good, about 10 mins on foot from the train station, right in the center and also on walking distance to Himeji Castle. Plenty of restaurants shops and malls around. The room was very good, big enough for 2 people. nothing comparable to tinny rooms in Tokyo or Kyoto. This hotel is definitely a good value for money comparing to all other places we stayed in Nara, Kyoto, Tokyo, Hiroshima etc..
